Work It! Make Your Summer Makeup Last

The phrase “less is more” doesn’t always have to apply when it comes to your Summer makeup habits, but how can you protect your skin and rock out your favorite beauty looks in the sweltering Summer heat? Keep reading to find out!

Make Your Makeup Work

“There is always room for sunscreen in your routine. You always need to protect your skin, regardless of your overall look. Prior to applying any makeup, slather on the sunscreen. For touch-ups throughout the day, without ruining your style, try a product like Lauren Hutton’s 24/7 SPF 18 Makeup-Friendly Hydrating Mist,” says skin expert Gocha Hawkins.

Lighten Up!

Summer is a time to rely on lightweight, steadfast options. “Smashbox’s Photo Finish Foundation Primer and Revlon’s Colorstay Active Light Makeup give amazing, flawless coverage and alleviate the need for reapplication. I know lots of women who wouldn’t dream of going out without their eye makeup done; for these ladies, I recommend MAC’s Liquid Eyeliner, which has a waterproof component, and Yves Saint Laurent’s Mascara AquaResistant. Both are smudge proof and long-lasting.”

Best Advice

“When the temperatures are climbing, the reality is that touch-ups will need to take place. Make sure that you’re prepared with Shiseido’s Pureness Oil-Control Blotting Paper, that way you can feel confident that your face will look flawless all day long.”
